7 Weeks

Seven weeks (tomorrow) until I meet the newest bundle of joy. He needs to bake a little longer but I won't lie, I'm terribly uncomfortable. There can't possibly be anymore room for him to grow into on my small frame but somehow he does.  Lemme tell you just how painful the Braxton Hicks contractions are nowadays too! NOT FUN!

Either way in 7 weeks we'll have a bundle of joy to bring home and introduce to our first baby and our puppy and family and friends. But he also needs his own space and THAT, my friends, has not been a task I've been on top of.

Here's a sneak peek of what will be going on in this little boy's room:

Here's the bottom half of the walls painted.
(When it's all done I'll revisit what it used to look like!)

The inside of the closet that is more like our storage unit for all things baby.
(Logan modeling the baby stuff)

Sneak peek of the bedding!

Can't wait to see this room come together! I hope our baby doesn't surprise us and say "Hello guys I'm actually a girl!" Ha!

Logan also needs his room completed badly! I painted his room and had an idea and I'm just not in love with it at all! His closet was also acting like a storage area so I took everything out, threw things away, rearranged furniture (don't worry Chris helped with the big furniture!) and tried to make his room feel bigger. This is what I came up with (temporarily)...
I moved his dresser into the closet and moved his shelf to where the dresser used to sit! On the side of his crib are an enormous amount of stuffed animals that I have no idea what to do with but I hate that they're sitting on the floor!

I also hung a DVD rack for Logan's movies and and those 3M hooks for his hats and bags. The other side of the closet is where I put his dresser.

We need to get him a big boy bed soon so I'm sure it'll change yet again in the near future and I (or Chris) will definitely be repainting his room. The bright turquoise is just not melding with me or the rest of the house. So, yeah, 7 weeks and counting! Hope everyone had a great weekend ♥

My No Good Very Bad Day!

And the day's not even over! I don't like posting about bad days because no one likes to read about bad days but I still have 11 hours in the day and I've already had a meltdown so this is my no good very bad day so far!

I took Logan to his first story time at the library today (YAY!) and he was good for most of the stories but then his cranky baby self took over and he was screaming "No, No, No" and then turning around and hitting me and my sister. I still don't know how to handle those situations in public but I kept grabbing his hand and firmly telling him he needed to behave in his ear! I was pretty embarrassed but then I had had enough and took him and put him in time out, which ensued more crying and screaming, in the library nonetheless! I felt more embarassed by the sea of onlookers who were watching my son throw his tantrum and me sitting next to him waiting for it to stop! I knew he was tired so we finished up and left.Sti

Then I figured since he was tired he would fall asleep and I could leave him with my sister and run to Home Depot to get some paint samples for the baby's room. I get there, order my samples, browse around, and when I came back my sunglasses were slipping off my head so I put them down for a split second, grab the paints, paid for them, realized I didn't have my glasses, came back and they were GONE! Someone swiped them. I loved those things and was pretty upset. I asked both service desks if anyone had brought them up but no one had. I was on the verge of tears but said to myself they can be replaced it's okay and home I came.

Still being upset about my sunglasses, I indulged in a few Oreo cookies with milk and sat down while Logan napped and then my chipped tooth (which chipped Sunday morning) became a full broken tooth thanks to an Oreo! UNBELIEVABLE. I guess this day could be worse but really a broken tooth sent me over the edge into a full blown meltdown with snot and tears. I really hope my bad day is over because anything else might send me to bed and not want to get out!

I saw the above quote on a board on Pinterest that I follow and thought it was relevant to today. Hopefully the day gets better ♥

I've been M.I.A.
I'm sorry.
It's probably because it's
Summertime and we've been outside
I've picked up scrapbooking again
(I hadn't done any real scrapping in a while)
I'm incredibly fatigued
and I just want to veg on my couch.
Logan's really putting the terrible in
terrible two's!

There are 8 more weeks until my newest bundle of joy
makes his debut into the world! Can't wait!

Oh and I don't know about you
But I've been thinking A LOT about Fall & Christmas!
Those seasons go by way to fast!

Backyard Critters.

The pros to having a garden is growing food to eat and having the satisfaction that you grew it!
The cons of having a garden: BUGS! Critters, creatures, creepy crawlies! Whatever you call them they're still cons, unless, they're helping your garden grow. Here are some of the ones we've found. I warn: they may make you cringe!

Tomato Hornworm. They apparently kill tomato plants, so, since we've found them Chris and I go out there everyday and check our plants. So not cool of them and makes growing our tomatoes and peppers a little more tedious!

From my Google searches this is a Wasp Spider! I could be absolutely wrong but all the pictures I found look like mine so I'm going with it!

A toad? Frog? Bullfrog? Who knows but I know my dog couldn't help but swat at it with her paw, in a playful way. Don't worry I made Chris put it back before dog or child could do it damage! 

And here's another week or two worth of growth! I can't wait to pluck off all my green tomatoes, and the peppers, eggplants, cucumbers, and watermelons!!
